Kansas City Homicide #131: Man Found STABBED To Death On Independence Avenue

The Kansas City Star's 2017 homicide tracker recorded number 130 on November 12, which means we went over two weeks in November without a homicide, so I suppose we can be thankful for that.

Unfortunately, there have still been several shootings in that time span that have left folks in critical condition. Those stories don't always make the news and are forgotten almost as soon as they happen.

Get it together, Kansas City. This isn't some urban core problem that we don't have to deal with. This is affecting kids and families. It is affecting our economy and our quality of life. It will have an exponential affect on future generations if we don't adequately develop comprehensive solutions to address it now.

Enough with all the big spending projects. When are we going to double down on efforts to address poverty, drugs, and violence in our city?

As long as it stays in the urban core they can keep shooting, stabbing and beating themselves with frying pans for all I care

Get your kicks @ 136---Well kiddies looks like I've estimated low again for the second year in a row. Somebody here says 154 so let's split the difference at 145.

The knife used was a bayonet used on a M16. Why are people allowed to own these military weapons? They can penetrate armor plate
